Jane Lury Collection- QuiltFest Exhibit

My favorite exhibit was the Jane Lury collection. (read the info at the end of this post) 
No words can describe- so enjoy!








So unusual to have a date- 1844!!! I love that tree? bush?  What a quirky quilt!

This one looks like a mosaic- not pretty, but so fascinating!

The fabric! the fringe! The hexies! Swoon!!





The book was published by Quiltmania- click HERE for more info.

    1. Friday and Saturday classes were hopping, so I wasn't able to be downstairs as much on those days.

  10. Fantastic! I love her book. I would have loved to see these in person. She had some lovely quilts at the AQSG seminar, but they were a bit out of my price range.

  12. Oh my! That hexie quilt with the vining fabric border swept me away...thank you for sharing these wonderful quilts. I have been coveting the book for months - will have to see about adding it to my shelf!

  13. I admire these quilts but I am noticing a collecting trend of [only?] valuing the very old and elaborate early 1800s quilts. And I do understand that there are fads in collecting, look how we loved Amish quilts years ago! But my personal love will always be the pioneer or prairie quilt, the make do calico and wonky appliques of more recent quilts. Many are more than 100 years old now. I hope they won't fall into disuse or dislike now, as they fade in comparison to their ilder more elegant siblings.

  16. So fun getting caught up on your blog. You've been so busy with some fun things! The sashiko is super interesting and it's fun to see your version of the quilts from Houston. I love seeing the same things from someone else's perspective. Safe travels to you!
